Read a lot of reviews about security at this park and not to accept a site on the fence. Well we arrived and our site was on the fence. We stayed 4 nights and had items outside padlocked with no issues at all. Didn't hear any strange noises at night. Had a fantastic stay in the park, we don't have...

It is now our second visit to this caravan park with our caravan. Nice large sites with concrete slabs. The amenities modern and clean. Just off the main highway easy run into town. Well managed and we will stay here again. One tip - set aside at least half a day (or more) to visit the transport museum, about 10...

Hi John, thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. And yes the National Road Transport Hall Of Fame & Old Ghan Museum are worth spending half a day or more to see. We hope to see you in Alice again one day.

It's 7 years since we last visited this park and were suitably impressed. It is a large park with a bushland setting. It is located 5Km from Alice and road noise is non existent. It is a family orientated park providing plenty of activities for the kids. The recently installed water slide and the upgraded pool area would have to...

We booked a powered site here. Have stayed here twice over the last 6 weeks; once going north and the second heading south. This caravan park is top quality. The range of facilities are excellent. The powered sites are large, grassed and shaded. The amenities are spotless. There is an onsite pancake van, a coffee van, 3 swimming pools and...

There is nothing more that you could possibly want when staying at this huge park. We booked a powered site and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely grassed area and close to amenities. Toilet/shower block is huge, clean and modern. I think it was just bad luck but my shower was very poor and barely a trickle. My husband had better luck....

Very slow to get in via reception. They need to update their procedure as it's painful at best. Other than that a great place to stay and very well set up and run. About 5 min from the city centre. Easy to get to. Would recommend to others. Pricing is about normal for powered sites.
